Standing Oblique Twist (weighted): ideal finisher move for your obliques. Your shoulders will have to put in the work too.
You don't need that much weight to make this exercise work, start with no weights to get used to the rotation. Keep your arms straight and use the weight your shoulders and obliques can handle. Keep your hips facing forward and hold it locked. Bend a bit through your knees and you want to go as far as you're comfortable, the stretch and explosive return is what you're looking for.
I use this exercise after I've done the Standing Oblique Crunch (see my previous post) as a finisher.

SLEDSANDTYRES.COM - OBLIQUE CRUNCH Who said tyres were only for flipping?
Lose those love handles and areas of fat with us!
To make this exercise easier bend your knees to allow yourself to shuffle towards the middle of the tyre before performing. You should now find that the side of your torso is resting onto your tyre rather than hip.
To add difficulty stretch hands above head before performing.
🔺OBLIQUE FOCUSSED AB WORKOUT🔺
The people spoke so here it is!! Obliques are very hard and stubborn muscles to train so here are a few of my favorite workouts for any level 🤗
1️⃣ Side Crunch With Weight- 3 sets X 20 reps each side
▪️Make sure you are letting that weight hang, only pull it back up with your abs. Have a “noodle arm” with the weight.
2️⃣ Hanging Leg Crunch Across- 3 sets X 15 reps each side
▪️My feet are off the ground and I am hanging. If this is too hard for you still, that’s okay! You can always have your feet on something and still crunch across, feeling a burn!
3️⃣ Cable Pull Across Crunch- 3 sets X 15 reps each side
▪️Make sure when you do this, you are only using your abs to pull that weight across and down.
4️⃣ Cable Stiff Pull Across- 3 sets X 15 reps each side
▪️Keep straight arms and your feet should stay planted in one spot. The movement should be in your abs as you are using them to pull that weight across your body.
